Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

50 ILCS 355/5-5

    (50 ILCS 355/5-5)
    Sec. 5-5. Definitions. As used in this Article:
    "Department" means the Department of Revenue.
    "Family member" means the following, whether by whole blood, half-blood, or adoption:
        (1) a parent or step-parent;
        (2) a child or step-child;
        (3) a grandparent or step-grandparent;
        (4) an aunt, uncle, great-aunt, or great-uncle;
        (4.1) a niece, nephew, great-niece, or great-nephew;
        (5) a sibling;
        (6) a spouse or domestic partner; and
        (7) the spouse or domestic partner of any person

    "Financial information" means the information provided to the municipality or county by the Department under Section 11 of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act that is reported to the Department by a business located in a given municipality or county.
    "Person" means an individual, sole proprietorship, corporation, registered limited liability partnership, limited liability company, partnership, professional service corporation, or any other form of organization.
    "Misallocation" means tax paid by the taxpayer and allocated to one unit of local government that should have been allocated to a different unit of local government. This includes misallocations discovered by a unit of local government through the tax location verification process under Section 8-11-16 of the Illinois Municipal Code and misallocations discovered by the Department other than through an audit of the taxpayer. "Misallocation" does not, however, include any amount reported by a taxpayer in an amended return or any amount discovered in an audit of the taxpayer by the Department or discovered in an audit of the taxpayer by a qualified practitioner under Article 10 of this Act. "Misallocation" also does not include amounts overpaid by the taxpayer and therefore not owed to any unit of local government, nor amounts underpaid by the taxpayer and therefore not previously allocated to any unit of local government.
    "Monitoring disbursements" means keeping track of payments from the Department by a municipality, county, or third party for the limited purpose of tracking previous misallocations.
    "Third party" means a person, partnership, corporation, or other entity or individual registered to do business in Illinois who contracts with a municipality or county to review financial information related to the disbursement of local taxes by the Department to the municipality or county.
